BuildGDX (News & Releases)

Route 66 appears as its own episode when you use the GOG Redneck Rampage install folder as game folder
To play Rides Again you have to set game folder to the AGAIN subfolder since it is not an expansion but it's own game
I believe CD music support is the same as it always been in RedneckGDX, in other words you need to add the tracks as .OGG files. Fgsfds put out packs with those already converted

As for the Duke addons, they will work if you load the GRP files as user mods. HOWEVER, you will need to choose yes when asked whether you want to extract internal CON files or Caribbean and Nuclear Winter won't work (however Duke it out in DC works fine without doing so, presumably because there are no new enemy types)

Ironically, this will break addons in eduke32 if you let it autodetect folder.

Well, actually it seems it's simpler. You can have all Redneck groupfiles in the same dir (redneck.grp, rides.grp, route66.grp), choose "User Content" from the episode selection menu and then choose either rides.grp or route66.grp (just like it works for the Duke3D addons). The only thing I haven't figured out yet is how to use the RA music pack for Rides Again instead of the default one for RR (without having to manually exchange files).

Perhaps M210 can add an 8-track tape library to switch soundtracks? :P

Nice! xD
Well, maybe BuildGDX can get an update to make this easier. You rename the tracks for RA to from track02.ogg, track03.ogg etc. to rides02.ogg, rides03.ogg (...) and they are automatically recognized and used in RA instead of the RR tracks?

Excessive tinkering like this would not be a suitable installation procedure for a source port.

OK I extracted BuildGDX, where do I put the Blood files? :lol:

Either in the same folder as BuildGDX for a portable installation, or you just point the game folder in BuildGDX to wherever Blood is on your harddrive.

@m210
seems some blood tiles are disabled for highres replacing.
i tried these few:

//Help-screens
texture 2570 { pal 0 { file "menu/tile2570.png" } }
texture 2571 { pal 0 { file "menu/tile2571.png" } }

//Blood-Title
texture 2046 { pal 0 { file "menu/tile2046.png" } }
//Blood-Title (with Plasma)
texture 2518 { pal 0 { file "menu/tile2518.png" } }

Those work for me, except Blood-Title (with Plasma), because BloodGDX doesn't use it this tile.

Great, right now bloodgdx is the best way to play Blood over Nblood or fucking shit ExBlood.

Bloodgdx right now runs flawless and smooth.

Thank you.

Will that make the GDX colours look like the original? I'm not sure if it's a stylistic choice but in GDX the dirt floor at the start of the game is more of a pale brown rather than the reddish brown in the original.

The software renderer in the Build engine uses lookup tables for shading (because it was faster at the time to do so rather than using multiplication)

Polymost without palette emulation uses multiplication instead (something GPUs are very good at)

Here's the shadetable for PLU 0 (extracted by Fox) next to an estimation I made of how it looks using multiplicative shading.

Hi, I would like to compare elder versions of BuildGDX with the most recent one. Where can I download the binarys of version 1.02 or 1,01. ?

Just for my own curiosity

Everything's working great. I just noticed problems with sound loops on DukeGDX (there's a huge gap between loops where the sounds should instantly play again).

I continue the topic about the numbers of blood tiles to replace with Highres. If I make a "Quit to Title" from the map of the Cryptic Passage, then this image appears (if you do not use external graphical improvements):

https://i110.fastpic.ru/thumb/2019/0712/5b/_66a2b34547ae0a7d850ccc2101439f5b.jpeg https://i110.fastpic.ru/thumb/2019/0712/45/_b0525ecbc9c9e70d857f68d28f0bd445.jpeg

Please tell me, what is the tile number of this texture and where is the high quality image on the network? My search returned no results.

Nice, this version fixed loading from lagging to almost instant (entering map or demo on startup still takes like 2-3 seconds to load though) also decreased ROR lag to miliseconds hickcup with 'almost' no fps drop.

I have a suggestion/request. I think you should make the centered crosshair/horizon an option like in NBlood. I know there is the Vanilla mode but that also introduces other bugs from the original. I don't know what others feel, but to me it feels like you always need to be looking a bit up to aim straight on. Especially when using the full hud since it hides a fair bit of the screen and pushes the weaponsprite up without adjusting the viewport, if you know what I mean.

Hey m210, this is awesome news! I've been waiting for a new release. Really happy you're putting so much effort into it!

Unfortunately, in this version, the gamma/brightness/contrast settings no longer work. They cannot be changed.

Also, none of the mods in any of my Build games' autoload folders are loaded. I have them in e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\Games\Redneck Rampage\autoload, and BuildGDX 1.04 doesn't apply any of them.

Autoload works differently now. BGDX looks for <gamename>gdx.def instead of <archivename>.def. For RR you'll need rrgdx.def inside of a zip.

I think I read on discord that gamma/brightness/contrast settings work (or don't) based on the gfx driver.
